What do heavy rockers want to say? (video)

Dead Kennedys; Dave Mustaine, Alex Jones (Ken Ammi/; Wisdom Quarterly
(DKs) Everyone should know what the Dead Kennedys sing. They know and they joke about it.

Dead Kennedys Bedtime for Democracy tee
Alex Jones talks with Megadeth front man (and former Metallica member) Dave Mustaine about conspiracies, Christianity, hypo[critical]christians, and what's really going on. Why did the CIA/LBJ assassinate U.S. Pres. JFK? He wanted to pull our currency out of the private Federal Reserve banking system, the "Moneychangers," and put the right to print money back in our government's hands. The powers that be weren't going to stand for that. They were already mad at him for threatening to end their very profitable War on Vietnam. Mustaine wanted to record with the Dead Kennedys when singer/genius Jello Biafra shot him down for recording with war profiteers/music publishers. Mustaine had no idea the warmongers were now in the music business. So much for any real "rebels" or "rebellion" coming out of commercial rock. Expect more pop candy and hedonism.

Space aliens built Buddhist temples? (video)

Ellora Caves: The Mind-Boggling Rock-Cut Buddhist Temples of India
Rock-cut Buddha statues in Ajanta cave
There were no caves here to begin with. How are we to comprehend the 100+ artificial Ellora caves and Ajanta caves? How were they built? By space-devas?

Somehow the massive Ellora complex of publicly visible 34 unique structures has been magically cut out of pure rock, into the side of a mountain, without the use of "modern" technology. This construction would be difficult if not impossible to replicate today.

This never-before-seen documentary closely looks at the intricate Buddhist temple and suggests — as have many archaeologists on the ground — that thousands of years ago, ancient cultures were far more advanced and sophisticated than scholars are generally willing to give them credit for. Who handed them that level of technology?

We call them "caves" but they are much more
What baffles experts at Ellora is the incredible precision, not possible by hand, and extensive layout of the design imposed on the rock. It is plausible that whoever or whatever built these caves was using unknown advanced ancient-alien technology.

Cave 16, the magnificent Kailasa Temple, is notable for being the largest monolithic structure in the world! It was carved out of a single rock.

How to deal with family: meditation (Dec. 5)

Ananda (Dharma Meditation Initiative), Dhr. Seven, Ellie Askew (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Our family is the second worst family ever.
"My family drives me crazy!" What can I do or what can anyone do? The Buddha had three answers:
  1. mindfulness (sati)
  2. forgiveness (khanti)
  3. deeds (karma). 
Ahh, noting can bother me now.
We'll talk about the first two and leave the why (Number 3) out of it. This is about being proactive and doing something right now for immediate results.

Meditators seek truth. Our quest is to see for ourselves, not just to hear nice words, ideas, and smart answers to life's problems. So we'll undertake to practice guided visualization, serenity meditation, mindful walking, and the cultivation of boundless loving-kindness (metta). Followed by sharing, discussion and vegan refreshments. Free/by donation. Suitable for beginners. More

"Civilized to Death" - back to real life (audio)

Author Christopher Ryan, Phd. Civilized to Death, comedian-interviewer Jimmy Dore ("Jimmy Dore Show" at, 5:00 PM, 11/29/19); Dhr. Seven, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Author Christopher Ryan interviewed by comedian Jimmy Dore:
Civilized to Death (Christopher Ryan)
The New York Times bestselling co-author of Sex at Dawn explores the ways in which “progress” has perverted the way we live: how we eat, learn, feel, mate, parent, communicate, work, and die.

Most of us have instinctive evidence this world is ending — warm winter days, face-to-face talking replaced by head-to-screen zombie behavior, USA in perpetual war with enemies it invents, dysfunctional politics.

We hear some myths and lies so frequently that they feel like truths: Civilization is humankind’s greatest accomplishment. Progress is undeniable. Count your blessings. You’re lucky to be alive here and now.

Life can be fun and easy!
Well, maybe we are and maybe we aren’t. Civilized to Death counters the idea that progress is inherently good, arguing that the “progress” defining our age is analogous to an advancing disease.

Prehistoric life, of course, was not without serious dangers and disadvantages. Many babies died in infancy. A broken bone, infected wound, snakebite, or difficult pregnancy could be life-threatening.

Sex at Dawn (Ryan)
But ultimately, Ryan argues, were these pre-civilized dangers more murderous than modern scourges, such as car accidents, cancers, cardiovascular disease, and a technologically-prolonged dying process?

At a time when our ecology, our society, and our own sense of self feels increasingly imperiled, an accurate understanding of our species’ long prelude to civilization is vital to a clear sense of the ultimate value of civilization — and its costs.

Your Country is Just NOT That Into You
In Civilized to Death, Ryan makes the claim that we should start looking backwards to find our way to a better future. More
  • Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way. By examining the prehistoric origins of human sexual behavior, the authors are able to expose the fallacies and weaknesses of standard theories proposed by most experts....” — Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D.

FILM: "Vegan 2019" premiere (Nov. 30)

Plant Based News (PBN) announces the premiere of its new documentary Vegan 2019 at the Fine Arts Theatre in Beverly Hills.

In recent years the vegan movement has skyrocketed. No longer a niche environmentally-sensitive, cruelty-free food movement, the V-word now makes regular appearances in mainstream media.

Data puts the number of vegans in the UK, for example, anywhere between 600,000 and 3.5 million, depending the data source.

In a bid to investigate this phenomenal growth, PBN Founder Klaus Mitchell created Vegan 2019 -- a documentary that takes a deep-dive into how and why plant-based diets are rising in prominence. It looks at some of the most significant vegan moments of the year.

Vegan foods can taste better.
For the first time, fast food giants put plant-based "meats" center-stage. Burger King launched its "Impossible Whopper," and KFC tested plant-based mock-chicken in the US and UK.

UK stalwart Greggs saw its profits soar after launching its viral vegan sausage roll, and plant-based tech company Beyond Meat launched on the NASDAQ.

While these innovations in animal-free food garnered debate, top vegan athletes were showing how it’s not only possible to survive on a vegan diet but to thrive, excel, and beat the meat eaters.

Tennis ace and plant-based enthusiast Novak Djokovic showed mental and physical prowess beating Roger Federer in a thrilling five-set Wimbledon final.

The link between athleticism and plant-based eating is set to be explored even further, with the release of highly-anticipated documentary The Game Changers.

This year saw more people becoming aware of the environmental dangers of animal ranching. This warning was hammered home when news of Amazon Rainforest fires swept across mainstream news.

Millions of people pinned their hopes of change on teenage vegan climate activist Greta Thunberg, who fearlessly gave speeches in front of world leaders, blasting them for stealing the future from young people.

Vegan 2019 features leading names in the world of entertainment, sports, and animal advocacy, whose stories weave together to create a thrilling tapestry of a vibrant movement.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring special guests. Proceeds from the screening will be used to cover the cost of the event and support the work of Plant Based News. More

The real Thanksgiving, Black Friday (video)

Daniel Bushell (The Truthseeker, RT America) via Burgundee Bordeaux; Lori Harfenist (The Resident, RT America); Xochitl, Ashley Wells, Dhr. Seven, Crystal Quintero (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

What did Europeans find arriving in America?
Boarding schools = concentration camps.
(Burgundee Bordeaux) Thanksgiving is a celebration of "far and away the most massive act of genocide in the history of the world," according to "The Truthseeker" (aka Daniel Bushell).

Unthanksgiving Day and National Day of Mourning protests expose the real story of the first settlers: a bloodbath after our federal government announced it was offering from 5¢ to 50¢ per Native scalp.

Lies My Teacher Told Me
The money was handed out to any white person who killed a Native American. Will there ever come a year when European-whites become a minority in the US? It depends how "minority" gets defined. Playing with the definition, media alarmists say "our" country is being taken over by "them."

The Other Slavery
What's the truth? Let's seek the facts from Ihanktonwan First Nation hereditary Chief Phil Lane, Mexica Movement Director Olin Tezcatlipoca, Atsina tribe member Lenore Stiffarm, who suffered sexual abuse from the Holy Roman Catholic Church at an "Indian boarding school" (designed to molest and rape children and/or take the Indian out of them by beating the language and culture out of them until in 1972 it again became legal to speak indigenous languages), Savage Anxieties author Prof. Rob Williams, and heroic attorney Daniel Sheehan of the Lakota Child Rescue Project.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown should be a national educational requirement in every school across the board. Let's abolish Columbus Day because 1492 never ended and there are no statues of limitation for murder.

(RT America) Big Box stores have all announced they are opening early on Thanksgiving this year, to enlarge the horror shopping show that is "Black Friday" (moving into the financial black on the holidays). People are starting to call Thanksgiving "Thanksgiving Thursday." Yes, some folks are amending our Native genocide/family holiday name to incorporate what really matters to America -- shopping. "The Resident" (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses. 

No Thanks, No Giving: Nat'l Day of Mourning

AJ+; Olivia B. Waxman (, 11/21/19); Xochitl, Crystal Q. (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
(AJ+) Thanksgiving is actually a National Day of Mourning: Native Americans in New England have been hosting an annual protest in Plymouth, Massachusetts since 1970. When was the "first Thanksgiving"? According to demonstrators, it was in 1637, when Gov. John Winthrop hosted a dinner to celebrate the return of soldiers who had massacred 700 Native Americans. These demonstrations are intended to highlight the myth that natives and pilgrims lived together peacefully and that "Indians" gave up their God-given land willingly for some trivial consumer goods the way European invaders claim.
“I was teaching a lot of misconceptions.” We used to indoctrinate American kids about the “First Thanksgiving”
Lies My Teacher Told Me
On a recent Saturday morning in Washington, D.C., about two dozen secondary-and-elementary-school teachers experienced a role reversal.

This time, it was their turn to take a quiz: answer “true” or “false” for 14 statements about the famous meal known as the “First Thanksgiving.”

Did the people many of us know as pilgrims call themselves Separatists? Did the famous meal last three days? True and true, they shouted loudly in unison. Were the pilgrims originally heading for New Jersey? False.

But some of the other statements drew long pauses, or the soft murmurs of people nervous about saying the wrong thing in front of a group. Renée Gokey, Teacher Services Coordinator at the National Museum of the American Indian and a member of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, waited patiently for them to respond.

Uprooted near Wrigley Field (
The teachers at this Nov. 9 workshop on “Rethinking Thanksgiving in Your Classroom” were there to learn a better way to teach the Thanksgiving story to their students. But first they had some studying to do.

When Gokey explained that early days of thanks celebrated the burning of a [Native American] Pequot village in 1637, and the killing of Wampanoag leader Massasoit’s son, attendees gasped audibly.

“I look back now and realize I was teaching a lot of misconceptions,” Tonia Parker, a second-grade teacher at Island Creek Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia, told TIME.

It can sometimes seem that the way kids are taught about Thanksgiving, a staple of American education for about 150 years, is stuck in the past; an elementary school in Mississippi, for example, drew backlash for a Nov. 15 tweet that included photos of kids dressed up as “Native Americans,” with feather headbands and vests made of shopping bags.

But the approximately 25 teachers at that Washington workshop were part of a larger movement to change the way the story is taught. More

Ajahn Chah: In Search of Refuge

Ajahn Chah ( via Ven. Sujato, Ellie Askew, Dhr. Seven (ed.), Wisdom Quarterly

[The Buddha spoke of a "refuge" (sarana). For there is only one real refuge. That's nirvana. But it has come to be thought of as threefold, Three "Refuges" as the path to the real refuge: Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, the Three Jewels, Triple Gem, or Three Treasures. That's how the enlightened Thai Meditation Master Ajahn Chah is assuming it is understood here as he explains that the heart is at the core of nirvana:]

The Buddha said to find our refuge. That means to find our real heart. This heart is very important. People don't usually look at important things. Instead, we spend most of our time looking at unimportant things.

For example, when we clean house, we may be bent on washing the dishes and so on. But we fail to notice our own hearts. Our hearts may be rotten, we may be feeling angry, washing the dishes with a sour expression on our face.

That our own hearts are not very clean, we fail to see. This is what I call "taking a temporary shelter for a refuge."

We beautify house and home, but we don't think of beautifying our own hearts. We don't examine suffering (disappointment, woe, dukkha*).

The heart is the important thing. The Buddha taught us to find refuge within our own heart: Attahi attano natho: "Make yourself a refuge unto yourself/Be your own refuge." For who else can be our refuge? The true refuge is the heart, nothing else.

We may try to depend on other things, but they aren't a sure thing. We can only really depend on other things if we already have a refuge within ourselves. We must have our own refuge first before we can depend on anything else -- be it a [savior,] teacher, family, or friends.

*DUKKHA: not getting what we want; getting things we don't want; separation (loss) of the loved; connection with the unloved; old age, sickness, death; pain, misery, boredom, suffering.

Venice: human-caused water rise? (video)

DW (Deutsche World, German PBS TV, 11/18/19); CC Liu, Crystal Q. (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Under threat: Venice needs to save its future
(DW) Built on ten million log posts, small islands, and mud banks, Venice, Italy, is slowly sinking. More than ever, the "Pearl of the Adriatic" is under threat. Having recently been hit by its most severe floods and with a state of emergency declared, what is being done to save it and its priceless art?

Well over 1,000 years ago the first wooden huts were built out on the middle of a lagoon -- marshland -- off the coast of northern Italy. The archives tell us these were the homes of people fleeing barbarian invasions in the aftermath of the collapse of the Roman Empire.

Later, with land in short supply, human-made areas were developed. But construction was far from easy; the bed of the lagoon consisted of sediment and mud, forming a foundation that was constantly moving and sinking. Yet, Venetian architects managed to build the city’s palaces, towers, and Catholic/pagan cathedrals.

Venice stands on a forest of wooden piles -- 10,000,000 in all -- which anchor the buildings to the lagoon’s muddy bed. The buildings themselves are constructed in such a way that they can compensate for movement, even earth tremors, without suffering noticeable damage. 

But the water the Venetians built their city on is becoming more and more of a threat.

Industrialization has played its part in disturbing the natural balance of the lagoon: The sea bed has subsided and the effect of the tides has changed, resulting in a water level in the city’s canals that is 24 centimeters higher than when they were first built.

Add to that the controversial presence in the lagoon of giant cruise ships: a source of income for the city, but also one that contributes to atmospheric pollution, as well as causing wake (water rise) damage.

No Safe Spaces: losing our rights to save them

NO SAFE SPACES trailer starring right wing comedian Adam Carolla and extreme right wing Jewish Christian capitalist conservative Patriarch Dennis Prager.

Hillary would have been worse.
The right wing is laughing at us, saying we're the ones against freedom of expression, freedom of thought and action. Q: Who is filling in the ranks of policing agencies?

A: Right wingers, patriarchs, extreme sexists, rapists, racists, people on power trips. But the Left has much to answer for in trying to curtail speech and acting like the Thought Police. Who's calling for "safe spaces" and complaining excessively about "micro aggressions" as if stopping expression would ever stop the motives behind those expressions?

DISCUSSION: Adams Corolla swings to the hard right.
He had always actually been a right winger like his buddy Jimmy Kimmel.*

They're takin away our right to be sexist-racists.
Who works at Google, Apple, Facebook, and other left-leaning spy agencies? That would nominal liberals. We must be wary of an increasingly active and reactionary "cancel culture" and giving lip service to the issues we claim to care so much about.

We can't call for losing our right to save them or having others lose freedoms as we try to win freedom from oppression: capitalist, religious, political, and social. Beware the overreach. Beware we don't become the Orwellian nightmare we always feared. Vote/agitate for real change not whitewash.

Jesse Ventura mocks Google at Google Talks

Talks at Google, May 6, 2011; Pfc. Sandoval, Seth Auberon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

When Google had a simple credo ("Don't be evil") that it kept to, it made a pact to have a diversity of voices. That means inviting speakers who are going to say things you may not want to hear -- like how your company and its products and practices are evil. But that was back in 2011. We won't hold our breath until they invite someone else likely to say things Google Corporation dislikes. Ventura visited Google's Santa Monica office on April 13, 2011 to discuss his bestseller: 63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read.

Former wrestler turned Minnesota governor and New York Times-bestselling author uncovers truths Uncle Sam is lying about and keeping from us.

The "official" story on many programs is flat-out BS, according to Ventura. In this eye-opening collection of actual government documents, the truth-seeker proves it beyond any doubt.

Ventura and co-author Dick Russell walk readers through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind closed government doors. Witness as he breaks open the vault, revealing the truth about:
  • The CIA’s top-secret program to control our behavior
  • "Operation Northwoods" — the U.S. military/government plan to hijack U.S. airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists as a pretext to attack Cuba (false flag operation)
  • Deadly health care cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak
  • What the Department of War Defense knows about our food supply — but is keeping quiet
  • Homeland Security’s “emergency” detention camps for U.S. citizens
  • Fake "terrorist" attacks planned by the United States to set new laws and control us
Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers-that-be is trying to keep them under wraps. Ventura’s research and commentary sheds new light on what they’re lying to us about — and why it matters.

Our government lies?
(A. Jones) Say it ain't so, Jesse. While I am pleased that such a person has taken such a strong stance on 9/11, the JFK assassination, and the TSA scandal (among others), I am saddened that [everyone in] the country, including myself, has so far to go to catch up to him.... "In a free country like ours when [telling] the truth equals treason, we're in big trouble" (Ron Paul). Mr. Ventura has solidified his place in history. Speaking the truth...
